The Demon Within

This is an old half-written poem of mine I completed a few days ago.
The title leads to where I originally published it.

I feel the demon within rising
my heart beats raging fast
oh, the feeling is so exciting
will I be able this time to last?

the demon flows in my veins
the foul beast is full of vanity
this time I hope he remains
and does not flee with my sanity

ooh, my thoughts are running wild
everything seems to be speeding
I feel like a frightened child
where is the beast going to lead me?

Sun Coming Up

I discovered this poem in the drafts of my blog.
I wrote it almost three years ago but for some inexplicable reason 
I never published it. I fist published it at authspot a few days ago

I'm in pain, friend
my whole body is aching
forgive my seeing red
I was cruel and selfish

Stay with me, friend
my heart feels cold and empty
I wouldn't wake up again
if our friendship ended

Sun's coming up, friend
we both love this moment
the night soon will be dead
the Sun will end our torment

Come closer, friend
I'm still feeling cold
I love you, friend
you have a heart of gold

My technical blog is finally on-line

The Techworm, my latest and fresher than hot pancakes right out of the oven blog, has been on-line for a few hours. From now on I will split my time and attention between my two great loves, technology and literature, or more generally non fiction and fiction writing. It will be interesting to see whether one of the two sides wins or it turns out to be a...tie. Photobucket

Sirenia- My Mind's Eye

I just heard this beautiful song for the first time.
I knew the group but not this song of them.
For this one I have to post the full lyrics!

If you were here
I'd whisper sweet nothings in your ear
And appeal to all your fears
If you were mine If you were only mine
I'd bring you so much further down
And twist your mind until the end of time

You will never realize
What darkness lies inside
inside my mind

If you are down
I will come to chain you to the ground
And penetrate your mind.
If you are lost if only you are lost
I'll be there to break your trust

And ravage all your lust for life, my love
You will never realize
What darkness lies inside
inside my mind.

This video has some seriously disturbing images yet the voice of Theatre of Tragedy's singer is one of the most melodic and beautiful voices I have ever heard. She sounds like a real ancient greek Siren! Her voice will soothe your soul yet the imagery is not for the faint-hearted..
Thanks a lot for this rexxtini!

Infolinks Ads

As you may have noticed I just introduced for the first time in-text ads from Infolinks.
I prefer Infolinks or Kontera to Adsense because their ads are clean, discreet and far more minimal.
This is a actually sort of a test drive for my upocoming science/tech blog, I don't really expect these ads to generate any serious revenue in this blog.
There is also a single clandestine Adsense ad lurking and occasionally rearing its head inside that Triond widget on your right hand but I don't get a penny from it; it's just required to house this widget for free, I don't know I think I'd better remove it. I do get pennies though (literally) every time you click one of these links and read my articles and poems housed by Triond's affiliate sites.
Thanks for taking the time to have a look at this. I presume my next post will be about the grand announcement of my brand new blog.

Articles for content sites

As you may have noticed from the widgets on the right, I recently started writing articles for Triond and Bukisa, two very interesting revenue sharing content sites from Israel. In case you don't use javascript my articles are currently here , here and here. I've also posted my Paradise Found short story here. This blog is certainly not fitting for articles of technical-geeky nature, so I'm working on a new tech oriented blog, possibly on Wordpress, where I will present them more properly. So you may also view this post as a preannouncement of this blog.
Take care, Sharpedon.
